Re: Tipping Point (Non Dead, Tuesday morning musings)
The interviews from Wall St. remind me of this SNL sketch:
Undecided Female Voter 1: See, it's like, you look all around, and you see all this stuff? And, everybody's got stuff but me! Where's mine?! Where's MY stuff?! I'm young, man! I should have stuff, too! WHERE'S MY STUFF?!!
Bill Clinton: Well, that's a really good point. I hear this a lot. I think if this election is about anything, it's about... "stuff". It's about the fact that, under Reagan, Bush, Quayle, more people are working harder and harder for less stuff.
[ Hillary nods and smiles ]
Undecided Female Voter 1: [ twitching ] Where's my stuff, man?!
Bill Clinton: Exactly! Where is your stuff? We're in danger of raising the first generation of Americans who... will have less stuff than their parents.
Undecided Female Voter 1: Stuff! Yeah!
Ted Koppel: So, has Gov. Clinton influenced the way you will vote?
Undecided Female Voter 1: I'm... not voting 'til I get my stuff!
